Fresh from the success of ACTIONS - an evening of Men in Motion at the Abbey Theatre, John Scott has created MAGNETIC, a dance show constructed like a movement symphony.
It’s an explosive and joyous dance theatre work for five virtuosic dancers who have danced in everything from Broadway musicals to Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Each dancer pushes to achieve new levels of perfection: physical, technical and spiritual. MAGNETIC balances passion, humour, sensuality and outstanding dance.
Get ready for a thrilling evening of dance theatre that’s both funny and a little bit crazy!
“we watch, dazzled both by the light and the sureness and clarity of these fine dancers" The Irish Times
